"The robot-loving physicist (who once said that all science needed to know could be found by studying the behaviour of cellular automata) launched the knowledgable super-brain in 2009. Wolfram's threat to knock Google down a peg or two was mocked at the time, our Reg reviewer declaring the web service a tool primarily for boffins.
